New Challenge at Try it on Tuesday

Hi All. This is a scheduled post as I will be on holiday in Wales when it is posted and maybe not have any internet so I am keeping my fingers crossed that it posts ok.

This time at Try It On Tuesday the theme is Watches and Clocks so lots of things to make with one or both of those on it. Pop along to see what the rest of the wonderful team have made and I am sure you will be inspired to join in with us.


One of our neighbours collects pocket watches and often gives me the ones he doesn't want any more so I thought it would be nice to make him a set to send on his birthday with something in the little bag. There is a card, a matching envelope, a gift bag and a tag in the set.

I designed the images and used some of one of our photographs for a background and cut the pansies out on the photograph as well. The background with clocks was made from a clock image and I jiggled the shape to make it more interesting. All of this was done in Paint Shop Pro.

I couldn't find a white gift bag and I am useless at making them so I painted the edges and handles white with acylic paint-it needed a couple of coats



Here is the template I made if you would like to use it for your own projects. It is A4 size



Thank you for your visit and I will try to comment while I am away if I can find a Costa Coffee place with Internet.

Love Chrissie xx
